The Light Problem.
Shall Hillsboro renew its contract for electric lighting with the
Hillsboro Light & Fuel Co. and if so upon what basis or shall the
town build, own and operate a municipal light plant ?
This is an important question for the people of Hillsboro to
answer. It should be considered without passion and without
prejudice upon one basis only and that is what is the best thing for
the town. It is purely a business proposition. How can the people
of Hillsboro secure electric light at the least cost ? Can this be done
through a privately owned and operated plant or through a publicly
owned and operated plant ?
We have talked to various members of council and also to Mr.
Beecher and to say the least their figures do not agree. After a
talk with Mr. Beecher and being shown his figures and data it would
seem that the proposition of the Light Company to make a contract
to furnish street lighting for $69.50 a light and commercial lighting
at 9c a killowat is eminently fair and the best the Light Company
When we talk to members of council and see the figures and
data that they have it would seem that the price asked by the Light
Company is much too high.
While it has been said that "figures won't lie" they certainly
seem to tell different stories in this case. We frankly admit that
at this time we do not know what is the right thing to do ; that we
must have more information before we can arrive' at a decision.
This we hope to secure and when we have secured it will give it to
We know that for years the feeling has been general that the
Light Company has been charging exorbitant prices for light in
Hillsboro ; that its members are thieves and robbers and that they
have been cursed eloquently and earnestly many times. Whether
this feeling and belief is justified, we can not say, we only know it
has and does exist.
No man or company of men conduct a business without expecta
tion of profit and this is right. It would be foolish to run a business
on any other basis. The first proposition then is that the Hillsboro
Light & Fuel Co. believes that it can make money out of any con
tract that is is willing to make with the village. The second propo
sition is that if the Light Company can make money out of such eL
contract, the people could secure the village light and the private
light at a less figure if they owned their own plant, if (and here is
the big question) they would conduct it as efficiently and economi
cally as the Light Company.
We all know that politics too often enters into the conduct of
public business and if Hillsboro had a municipal light plant there
is the danger that men would be employed to run it because they
were Republicans, Democrats or Progressives and not because they
knew anything about running a light plant. If positions in it were
secured because a man had political influence and not because of
his efficiency we know that it would be an expensive proposition
for the people of Hillsboro. Will the people be so alert and wide
awake to their interests that if a municipal light plant is erected
that they will see that it is not made a political plaything ?
This is not a time for hasty and inconsiderate action. It is a
time for investigation, reason and good judgment, because we must
decide an important problem.
